Attending Vaughn was very tough for most of the class of 2020 because we were the class that was always evolving. It was mostly with technology, teachers, and classes. Sometimes we wouldn’t get classes other students got to do. But the biggest problem I have with the school is the cellphone policy. We have adult supervisors on campus during our break and lunch that tell us to put our phones away whenever they see a glimpse of it in our hands. I want to change this because I hate how we can’t use our phones when we’re not it class because if we’re being supervised by adults then it shouldn’t be a problem. But it seems that it would be more work for the adults and they don’t want to do their job already as it seems. I don’t have a problem with the school. I just have a problem with the administration and how they run the school with their stupid rules. They don’t even let us were sandals!!

Vaughn Next Learning Center is a great school. The teachers and staff are extremely helpful and will do everything to satisfy your concerns. Vaughn has a variety of advanced classes that will help students experience a more challenging course. They also offer college classes after school which are avaible to every student. Taking these college classes are beneficial, because students are able to get college credit without paying. Overall, Vaughn Next Learning Center is a great school that will prepare students for college.
The thing that fascinates me more about this high school is there main focus on college and they give it a college atmosphere, sort of. As well as the food is on point and we have a wide selection of it, therefore making a college background. I wish the school could fix their staff as most of them do not seem to be enjoying their time there, as well as the grading system because most of the time, when I get a good score on an assignment, my grade drops instead of going up.
